What exactly IS the funny thing of it?

What IS the funny thing?
That's the question on everyone's mind.
And while I have like 30 Blog topics simmering in my brain right now,
I dont have the energy time to pour out my wisdom type it out 
at the moment.
So while I link up with  Photo A Day Mommy Moments Challenge
I thought I would fill you in.

Although, I share alot from my heart on my blog about MY real life,
the deep down dirty  heart to heart talks I give,
originally this blog started because of my kids.
Well, who doesnt love to talk about their kids?
But MINE drive me absolutely crazy sometimes.

Prompt #10-Silly/Fooling Around/Laughter

You know those moments where where Jada is resting her head 
on Leila's shoulder in the car...
so Leila starts crying and kicks her leg and hits Wesley's leg,
SO THEN Wesley starts yelling at Jada that she is an idiot,
and Jada sticks her fingers in her mouth and  laughs AT Wesley,
(might I say, with a very evil mischievous tone)
and Daddy tells the kids to "knock it off" and then,
Leila starts crying and telling me "Mommy, Daddy's teasing"
so then I turn around and tell Wesley, "STOP calling Your sister idiot,
Jada, STOP laughing at Leila and Wesley,
and Leila, Daddy is NOT teasing!!!"
...and what is the obvious response to this all?

 Well of course it's "tweet tweet tweet tweet tweet!"
This is ONE of the many odd replies that Wesley gives when 
he is frustrated.
Yes, you read that right. 
Not only has he tweeted at me, but he has also "buzzed."
Buzz Buzz Buzz Buzz Buzz!!!
These are the things he does when he gets frustrated,
and doesnt really know how to channel the frustration,
so instead of lashing out in anger,
he... makes loud angry animal noises???

Those moments as a parent that you're like,
"what was I thinking?'
The ONLY thing I can do to choose sanity over moving far far away tears to LAUGH...
and then to tell everyone on facebook 
what just happened in my car this morning,
or this conversation I had with one of my kids
or what form of revenge Wesley has to "strangers sledding on snowhills."
(read that story  HERE )
Every day, I would update my facebook world on what life sounded like in my house today.
And everyday people would feel sorry for laugh with me.

Then at night, when the world is peaceful again...
I would feel like, ahhhh, this IS the life.
These precious kids are SO sweet...
(even though they don't let us sleep in our own bed)
Prompt #9-Rule of Thirds

and I would wake up to 3 beautiful smiling faces...

Prompt #5-Just Cant Get Enough
(oh did I mention it took about 17 of those above pics to get THIS sweet pic?)

Within five three minutes after waking up, "reality" would set in again.
The obvious reality that "daddy's teasing."
But in all honestly, because rarely am I NOT completely blunt and honest
to the point of cringing...
about my life...
can i say that although I love being real and encouraging love amongst humanity 
and uplifting human hearts...on my blog...


These kids are what "the funny thing of it is."
They keep me pulling my hair out laughing and smiling non-stop.

Prompt #10-Thankful/Blessed

Here is Leila who decided to lotion my legs after a shower. 
I felt like when Mary washed Jesus feet with perfume. Haha.
Look at her. This is what she tells me while she was lathering me up.
"You were always a pretty one, momma."

How can ANYONE not smile at that?!!

Prompt #7-Messy Moments...Leila and Lukas enjoying a mocha cookie crumble frappucino

Here are a few more instagram pics of my 3 funny things =)

People,  always told me Wesley looked like Macaulay Culkin when he was in Home alone.
What do you think? Seriously people stop in restaurants or the mall or I see them pointing and whispering that he looks just like him...

" Mom, lets make funny faces."
THIS is her funny face.

"Mom, lets try and be really artistic and take a picture in a giant sewer tube."

Oh wait, I meant: "Leila sit in that for mommy like this.."
Leila:" It's windy. There's rocks."
Me: "No, it's fine. They wont hurt you. You sit. And stop squinting."
